Eilíft sólskin – New composition project!
I was invited by Lila Bazooka (Sophie Bernado & Céline Grangey) to join “Eilíft sólskin” – a new chapter in their adventures: an itinerant composition residency combining meeting/playing with Icelandic musicians (Eyjólfur Eyjólfsson, Berglind María Tómasdóttir…) and recording the forces of nature, geysers, sources, humpback whales etc in different parts of the country… after some improvised gigs, in a possessed church or in a dark farm (violin/song/ribbon-theremin for me), crazy encounters, boat trips and hydrophone mysteries, we are declared ready for the next phase of the project, a creation residency in December in Marciac in the south of France, gig included (stay tuned!)

Also, Elektronmusikstudion just re-opened after a long lockdown and no access to modular legends there. Joy! I returned yesterday to prepare a week of residency with Eilíft sólskin in October.
I am – actually – currently working myself on purely acoustic pieces – one for six hands, another one is a septet, another one with voices, and all include staging! – soon booking workshops with musicians, more info about these pieces during this fall.
